Tyr Grimjaws, also known as the “Even-handed” and the “Maimed God” is the God of Justice and Law. He oversees the administration of judicial proceedings, hears the prayers of law enforcers and forms the focus for a number of orders of paladins and other knights. He is believed to reside with his close allies in the House of the Triad, part of the World Tree.
Although relatively new to Abeir-Toril (his cult appeared about 1500 years ago), he is one of the greater gods of the Faerunian pantheon and his church wields immense power, primarily focussed in the Savage Frontier and, as part of the Triad, in the lands of Damara and Impiltur. His worship is closely tied to that of Torm and Ilmater, and the three gods together make up the Triad. He actively opposes the worship of evil gods such as Bane, Cyric and Shar.
He is usually depicted as an aging but firm warrior, blinded and missing his right hand, both injuries resulting from his adhering to his beliefs in the face of betrayal and superior force. His symbol consists of the scales of justice, balanced on a warhammer, representing Might in the service of Right.
